Video: Tim Tebow talks to CBS Sports about season

"Can I say something, honestly? I think this offense is stunting your growth," Sharpe said. "Don't you think at some point and time you're going to have to be able to develop and throw the football fundamentally?"

The Broncos face the Chargers Sunday in a very important AFC West matchup. Denver, at 5-5, is just one game back of Oakland in the division, and a game up on San Diego. One of the reasons the Broncos are back in the playoff-race conversation: Tim Tebow, who took over a 1-4 team from Kyle Orton and promptly went 4-1 as a starter. (Orton, meanwhile, is the newest member of the Kansas City Chiefs.) 

Ahead of Sunday's matchup, CBS Sports' Shannon Sharpe sat down with Tebow to talk about his style of quarterback play, his future with the Broncos, why he's such a polarizing figure.

One of the best exchanges from the interview:

Sharpe: Do you believe this organization is 100 percent behind you?
Tebow: I believed that I am very blessed to play for this organization.
Sharpe: That wasn't the question I asked you -- whether or not you were blessed. I asked do you believe John Fox and John Elway 100 percent believe Tim Tebow is the guy that's going to get them back to winning championships?

Why are so many people uncomfortable with Tim Tebow?  Is it his failth? You see so many players kiss their hands and point to the sky, in football and baseball. They don't seem to have a hard time with, players gyrating their privates after a touchdown, police arrests, failed drug tests, spousal abuse or excessive violence on and off the field.............  Maybe a left handed QB will be a bad influence on their children!!!!!

If Tebow gave up Christianity and his virginiy and stopped circumsising Flippi boys and praying. do you think the haters would stop? Just a thought.

Seriously, anyone remember the cartoon Fat Albert? Remember one of Albert's friends in the neigborhood, "Mushmouth?" Is Shannon Sharpe not dead on "Mushmouth?" If Sharpe doesn't have to apologize for his embarrassing speech, why should Tim Tebow apologize for his less than artistic QB play. The Broncos win under Tebow and the guy is honest and hard-working and his team believes in him. Sharpe has played the game at a high level and his a Hall of Fame player. But as a mushmouthed broadcaster, he's embarrassing.

Tim Tebow can throw people I get tired of the Haters talking about completion percentage, Fox and the Offensive coordinator only let him throw 15-20 times a game what do you expect and he capitalizes on oppertunities they give him and he usually gets TD's passes and always gets his 65 yards rushing or more so why all the Hate.... The guy is a baller and wins games period....  Tebow is the best thing to happen to Denver Broncos football in a couple decades and Elway and Fox are going to trade him away like trash next season, dumb!

Maybe it's just me, but . . .

It seems like if Shannon Sharpe wants to be taken seriously as sports commentator (not just one of the guys talking football during halftime) he should he see a speech therapist. I mean, there are dozens of guys who can talk better that SS--better grammar, better diction. OK, he looks great in his suit and fine haircut, but really, underneath it all isn't he supposed to be a professional sports commentator? Isn't talking clearly a fundemental in that profession?

Yea, Tim Tebow doesn't do some things fundamentally right, and it frustrates a lot of people that he's winning and doing it with humility and class. But I don't think SS's style with a rookie QB is anymore appropriate than my attack on SS's speech peculiarities. No, SS, we overlook that speech thing because you played the game and have some insight to share. But TT understands that his job is to win, not to throw the ball! It's killing a lot of experts that TT just keeps winning when they say he's not supposed to. Great defense, with just enough offense, has won a lot of football games through the decades.

And exactly how "behind you" could Bronco's management be with any rookie QB after six games? Apparently just enough to cut loose Kyle Orton! Today's win over SD has gotta help, too!

All this "professional commentating" is going to turn me into a huge Bronco fan!

You are forgetting one thing. The broncos were 1 - 4 with out him. They are 5 - 1 with him.

I bet the Raiders may be the happiest team right now. Tebow is playing just well enough that it is going to be hard to get rid of him, but they will never truly compete for that division with Tebow playing as he his now (it may get better, but he doesn't seem to want to change the way he does things and 40% completion isn't going to get you very far in the long run). The only thing holding Denver back is the QB and if they keep Tebow, Oakland may win that division several years in a row.

Agreed! Tebow isn't winning football games, the defense is. If he were playing well at all they wouldn't have to have these end of game combacks to win. I think it's funny how all the analysts say "He just knows how to win in the 4th quarter" That's because he sucks for 3 1/2 quarters and his defense has kept the team in the game.

Time will tell. I'm not a Tebow or Bronco fan but bottom line Tebow is making more than me and the majority of other people parousing this site and is winning. Those are the facts like him or hate him.
